Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 small onions, diced
  • 5 grams celery
  • 1 carrots, diced
  • 200 grams uncooked skin-on chicken thighs, cut into small pieces
  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 1⁄2 cup Homemade Stock – I didn’t have time to make the homemade stock so I used an Organic Low Sodium Chicken Stock instead
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon onion salt
  • 4 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 small egg
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F

Add coconut oil, garlic, onions, celery and car- rot to a frying pan and sauté on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add chicken thigh pieces and cook through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, add cauliflower to a saucepan
and cover with chicken stock. Bring to a boil
on high heat, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to the jug of your high-powered blender with onion salt and blend until smooth.

Transfer cauliflower mix to vegetable mix and toss to coat. Divide into 2 individual ramekin dishes.

Cut together coconut flour, egg and coconut oil. The best way to do this is in a stand mixer or with a fork. Divide the dough into 2 equal piec- es. Sandwich each piece between two pieces of parchment and roll out until 1⁄8-inch thick.

Cover ramekins with dough, place on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 30 min- utes, until pastry tops begin to golden.

Allow to cool completely. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months.
